DRIVING DRUNK – THE FIELD SOBRIETY TEST VS THE CHEMICAL TEST
Drunk Driving is the most preventable crime that there is. So, don’t do it. If you’re going to drink, take a cab. It is dangerous for you and others, and it’s also very expensive for all sorts of reasons. When you get arrested for drunk driving, usually a field sobriety test is performed. You don’t have to take the test but if you think you’re close to the limit you might want to take it because you might be under and the test would prove it.
The test that you have to take is the chemical test that’s administered once you get back to the police station and if you don’t take that test then it’s an automatic 1 year driver’s license suspension.
There are many reasons to hire a good lawyer but the primary one is that the stakes are very high. You don’t want it on your record as it affects some people’s employment.
